In the wake of news that Kelly Sue DeConnick will be leaving the title, Marvel has announced that Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, of TV’s Agent Carter, are the new Captain Marvel writers, with art duties to be handled by Kris Anka.
Along with a new creative team, Captain Marvel will be taking a new direction in the aftermath of ‘Secret Wars’ as, with S.W.O.R.D. gone, Carol Danvers will step up to take responsibility for intergalactic defense, and diplomacy. Anka has modified the Captain Marvel costume to acknowledge Carol’s new career path, paying particular attention to her hairstyle. As Fazekas explains:
She’s military. She’s not going to have this huge mane of hair. It needs to be practical.
Captain Marvel #1 is set to arrive this fall.
